now, i know that you have voiced some critique about the Tapers Section at deadnet, and that's all well and good and i respect your position, but i have to ask you, and i mean this seriously, have you ever, in your long history of being intimate with the Dead canon, heard a better Let It Grow than that from 5/14/78? i sure haven't, but what's your take?

I virtually never stake a particular version of a song as best ever. How can anyone make such a claim unless they've heard all available versions? However the 5-14-78 version of Let It Grow is so head & shoulders above, I'm willing to say, Show me a better one. Haven't heard it yet.

What I like is that you linked it so seamlessly to this thread...for a moron like me, that made the attempt to follow up easy. I will say this is the DEAD I saw...a number of times in 78.

And, for once, Donna is right on.

Thanks, Arb.

I am in a wonderful home in Vista CA and as the town name might suggest I have a great view of the mountains from my in ground pool deck- jacuzzi bath, great office space in the cellar- this house is a dream- started the new position a month ago- if anyone knows where the dead crowd hangs in the san diego area, let me know
